in such and such city. so and so argued about who got what raise last year. here, a little bit different. here, medical resources and law enforcement are owned by the governor which, as established, comes from the turkish government. fire fighters and things like public works are owned by the municipality. let me tell you about budget discrepancies. the fire department, i got to tell you, when i went and i met with the fire chief, that one left a mark. their fire department was red tagged but they didn't have a place because it was so cold to house their engines because you can't leave diesel engines out in the cold, just doesn't work too well, so they still had to use the facility but they housed the personnel in two tents out in front. their headquarters is one tent and their dorm is another tent and they welcomed us in there, didn't even think twice. and in the story of what it was like there, for a community of nearly 700,000 people, their complete complement of fire fighters that were on duty, their professional staff, was just over 40. they had 4 pieces of apparatus. the newest of which was
in kansas city. 14.2 in wichita, kansas. the most there in 50 years. and a foot and a half in nashville, kansas. and this is all heading east. >> it looks like this storm is going to be a warmer one, though, for places like new york city and philadelphia. probably all rain along the coast. but for boston, a very tricky forecast we could indeed have at least 6 inches of snow. >> reporter: in chicago late today, a dog was spotted jumping between chunks of ice in lake michigan. after several tense minutes, a man on a kayak was able to steer it safely to shore. >>> this was chicago's heaviest snowfall in more than a year. and across the midwest, there were four deaths blamed on the storm. three of them from traffic accidents. brian? >> john yang in chicago for us tonight. john, thanks. >>> the storm this weekend will hit a lot of the same folks already hit by hurricane sandy. up and down the east coast, almost four months ago. and today, the last of the towns completely shut down due to storm damage finally reopened for homeowners to return. the town of mantoloking is a spit of land surroun
, "after newtown" wraps up tonight with a report from chicago on the public health crisis in the city in the wake of rising gun violence. >> the people who come in after having been shot are some of the highest risk folks. these are people who have been shot, who may have been shot before, and really without some intervention, without some life- changing moment, the trajectory's either going to be jail or death. >> woodruff: mark shields and david brooks analyze the week's news. >> suarez: and, as a magistrate grants oscar pistorius bail, we talk to charlayne hunter gault about how his arrest has focused attention on the unusually high rate of violence against women in south africa. >> domestic violence is shot through the entire society from the highest of the highed in socioeconomic terms to the lowest of the low. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> support also comes from carnegie corporation of new york, a foundation created to do what andrew carnegie called "real and permanent good." celebrating 100
of the city hall from 10:00 this morning to 2:00. people can turn in guns anonymously with no questions asked. anyone getting a handgun could get $100, a rifle, $200, and if you turn in an assault weapon, $300. a police sergeant might have a date with destiny when he hopped on bart with bride-to- be. their married plans were nearly derailed when duty called. >> reporter: san jose police sergeant is more lover than fighter. sometimes he is both. >> just a regular guy happy to have a job and happy to have such a gorgeous partner. >> reporter: frederick and his fiance recently took bart to get their marriage license in san francisco. they paid $75 for a non- refundable appointment at city hall. witnesses say this woman jennifer davis grabbed another passenger's purse. in the back of the train she was quickly surrounded by an angry mob. the suspect threw kicks and punches. someone tried to zap her with a taser on a day that was suppose to be about love, she whispered to her partner of ten years, don't get involved. >> and then he just disappeared like
, but it was the snow falling at two inches an hour in places that caused the worst problems. kansas city mayor sly james said it was the pace that was hard to deal with. >> it fell fast, it fell heavy and it fell at the wrong time. you know it started in the morning around rush hour and just continued until about 2:00 p.m. >> sreenivasan: the mayor said kansas city's main streets had been cleared by midday, and crews worked on residential neighborhoods. but yesterday, it was a far different story: this kansas city bus couldn't navigate the drifting snow and fishtailed into a lamp post. the snow came with high winds that piled up large drifts. and that, in turn, caused problems on the interstates. >> man, it's kind of tough out here even if you got a four wheel drive i advise you to stay in because everybody's getting stuck all over the place. it's a mess out here. >> sreenivasan: crews worked through the night and into today in missouri and kansas to plough i-70. 200 miles of the highway in kansas had been shut down as the storm blew through. today as the system tracked north and east, it created
with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and ver
treacherous across the u.s. cameras caught the moment when a city bus slid and smashed into a light pole. right there. fortunately, no one was hurt. while in cincinnati a truck driver was left hanging over an overpass after he lost control, the highway was closed to remove the truck safely. and passengers landing in cleveland had a slippery landing when their plane slid off the runway into grass and snow. the airline says no one was injured, fortunately. there's been extreme weather in australia. at least two people have been killed in severe rainstorms and flooding in the new south wales. residents are being evacuated because of the rising flood waters. world weather update in just a moment. and when we come back the afghan refugees returning home from iran. >> we're expecting at least 50 afghans to arrive, some of the 150,000 that iran has expelled so far in the past ten months. >> and why fishermen in the american northeast say their future is in doubt. >> once again we have seen flooding rains damaging winds and power outages into parts of new south wails very active weather system a
the city of detroit. that's coming up. also, very important piece of the puzzle in terms of fixing the sequester thing that is due to happen in about a week. that fell into place today. and new documents released today show that something we really, really need to be very, very safe may in fact be very dangerous. new coast guard documents revealed on that subject today. and you've got michael moore here tonight for the interview. that is all ahead. it's a really big show. >>> but we need to start in brussels, where today the war in afghanistan started to end, or these where the constituent countries of nato started the make their commitments today for how much they would commit to that country as our war there starts to end. the headline news out of brussels today was a very terse statement from the pentagon spokesman. it was kind of strange. he was essentially clarifying, hey, whatever you heard from the germans earlier today, that was not true. this is the statement. the reports that the u.s. told allies that we are considering 8,000 to 12,000 u.s. troops after 2014 are not corre
to tuesday, in that time frame, you can see, snow will overspread the midwest once again. kansas city could be the bull's-eye, just like last week, and the midwest could end up with 6 to 12 inches of snow. that is something we'll be watching as we head to early next week. erica. >> dylan, thanks. >>> another storm brewing in washington today. less than a week from mandatory government spending cuts going into effect. this morning, the president warned how it could effect you if congress fails to act. kristen welker at the white house with more on that good morning. >> reporter: lester, good morning to you. president obama said he plans to have conversations with congress into next week. but it's increasingly likely the sequester will go into effect. in his weekly address today, president obama says it's up to congress to act. >> here is the thing. these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. they can pass a balanced plan for deficit reduction. they can cut spending in a smart way and close wasteful tax loopholes for the well off and wel
the way back to oklahoma city. it is chronically untreated mental illness. our services go beyond that. you look at the reaction from the strategies, either gun control or -- a false sense of security. the real issue is people who have not been treated, in many cases, known to family and friends, but have not received the treatment they need to not get into extreme situations. >> you do not go over the nra line, putting armed guards and schools? >> just banning a certain firearm would not stop that. there are multiple ways to get it. just arming a bunch of people would not do that, either. someone could be armed on the other side of the school, that does not protect. none of these are 100% full proof. the only risk, get up with the problem is. stop before people even get to that point. that is the one denominator -- i remember before we had the tragedy at the sikh temple, there was a good job done in reacting to what happened in aurora. families seeking to protect and try to heal, then trying -- ultimately what you have to do is find out what could have been done to prevent this. it is
to properly as the commie-crat party. >> speaking in jefferson city, missouri, in 1950. the most famous tactic from mccarthy wasn't just name-calling, it was making oddly specific allegations for which he never produced evidence, but nevertheless demanded that people respond to these allegations because his allegations were so specific that they seemed very true, right? and anybody so accused must explain themselves against his secret. but again, oddly specific damning evidence. he famously told a crowd in wheeling, west virginia in february of 1950, quote, i have here in my hand a list of 205, a list of names that were made known to the secretary of state as being members of the communist party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the state department. 205 names on his list. so it must be true, right? it's not just a round number he made up, roughly 200 names. it's 205 names. that list must have come from somewhere. there must be some basis for this allegation that he is making. it can't just possibly be made up for political effect, right? there is a reason that joe m
weeks, and 100 air traffic towers would close at small-city airports. the reductions could mean longer lines, fewer flights, and fewer customers. for joe mellace, who owns a deli across from caldwell airport in essex county, new jersey. >> i do get a lot of business here, and taking this thing away, i just feel like this land would just be wasted. >> reporter: furloughs are also coming for 800,000 civilian employees of the defense department. across the country towns with military bases are bracing for the loss of thousands of jobs and the tens of millions of dollars those jobs bring to the local economy. >> i've also been very clear that there's an alternative. >> reporter: the president is using the potential loss of jobs to push congressional republicans into a deal, a deal that would lower the deficit by closing tax loopholes on higher income americans. >> are they seriously prepared to inflict more pain on the middle class because they refuse to ask anything more of those at the very top? >> reporter: but republicans say no deal on the sequester until the president proposes more s
. the most fundamental of which is this. when i was first elected to the city council i went to the city manager and talked to him about pride and things. he said here is your job. we have a capital improvement plan. the things we have to do over the next ten years and it costs so many million dollars and he said here is the problem. the public collectively is not willing to pay for what the public collectively wants. and is so true. is even truer in congress. the expectation is there can be current or more service delivered in an efficient, professional way for less money and the math doesn't work. you can do more with less once in awhile but year after year after year you simply can't and that is the most difficult thing for people to understand. you look at the gap that i've put up their about the vast amount drained by the bush tax cuts, some of that has gone back but only some of it because by and large the american people do not want any money spent on taxes. the price being paid for that is not so much an individual price. more a price that involves the health of the population an
started appearing on walls in the world's most famous city. the world is worried. if the sale goes ahead, others could soon be stripped for cash. if it starts to be removed and sold for very high prices, across the world, they may start to disappear. slave labor will be auctioned on saturday work is expected to earn more than half a million dollars. one owner truly tried to take it straight to the bank. >> the pope, now castro. the cuban president raised the possibility that he might resign. it became during a joint statement with russian president medvedev. for more on this curious comment, i spoke with the vice- president of the council of the americas. he said that we should watch his speech on sunday very carefully. he has already dropped a bombshell in cuban politics. >> he is looking for the best ratings in history for a cuban speech. this is a bit of a bombshell. nobody is anticipating that he will leave immediately, but signaling that he is getting older. he has seen what has happened to the president chavez. there does need to be a transition in the future. >> could we be lookin
york city. what does this thing look like you to? >> well, i hate to disagree with you. and i hate to have to defend the president here. but for you to say that president obama came one a bad program, the sequester thing, is one of the few plans he's ever come up with that i like. and any cabinet member that cannot make a cut of 1.25% should immediately step down. he's not capable of managing if he can't make those cuts in a reasonable and rational way. this is the same game we always play. when you have to make a little cut, you claim we have to cut food safety, we have to cut airline security. you absolutely don't. there's enough waste and bloating you could make reasonable cuts. >> this is obama's plan. and this is a good thing. this is like the drones. i like the drones and i like the sequester. but he's disowning the sequester. >> but they let him get away with it. we've got to make this clear. this is obama's plan. he designed it. he created it. >> republicans also back the sequester. they're both responsible for this mess. and it's a mess. and i think what's going to happen,
towards a freer environment of the city and move from the south to the north and that is what most people did. in the process of doing that, some of it became politicized. >> host: because they expected things to be markedly different in the north. they didn't think racism was in the north. >> guest: in the north they are not going to be murdered for taking a stand. and so in the relatively freer environment they are able to really create the conditions for the modern movement. >> host: talk about some of the people of the movement. those in sncc and those nclc and others. who were the people who'd -- was a king, was that nocco max? was that the death of medgar evers? >> guest: all of the above. all of them had different roles. one of the ways in which i try to explain this is rosa parks made martin luther king possible. martin luther king didn't make rosa parks possible. if she hadn't done what she did by refusing to give a per seat on the montgomery bus martin luther king would have simply been an articulate, well meaning baptist minister. it's because of rosa parks that we are talking
living and working here are undocumented. jose zacarias, the only hispanic city council member believes a path to citizenship will empower more hispanics to help run the town in which they are the majority. >> maybe a generation more will be integrated, established in this community. >> reporter: two communities in one trying to grow together in a changing world. mark potter, nbc news, west liberty, iowa. >> meanwhile, in washington, we are six days away from budget cuts known as the sequester going into effect and with congress having taken the last week off it doesn't seem we're any closer to a deal being reached than we were at this time last week. just how are both sides playing their sequester strategies? joining me to discuss that in the war room is admiral joe sestak, former navy officer and pennsylvania congressman and republican strategist and former aide to george h.w. bush. thank you for being with me, gentlemen. >> good to be with you, mara. >> let's start with the president's strategy. this week he did a bunch of local interviews and the white house issued a bunch of press
